They are now accepting donations of items and experiences of all values for the silent auction in this fundraising event. Sponsorships and cash donations are welcome to support the program and success of the event as well.

The nonprofit Fallbrook Blanket Project provides free donated yarn for knitting and crocheting items to be given to many different North County charities. The weekly free gatherings take place every Monday at Living Waters Church on Reche Road from 10 a.m. to noon. Individual Knit and crochet instruction is provided free.
Many folks do their knitting/crocheting at home to create blankets, Afghans, baby blankets, hats, scarves, 7x9 inch patches, etc. These can be turned in on any Monday or by contacting Carmen Willard at 314-803-0986 or http://www.fallbrookblanketproject.org.
